I write Spanish phonetically in Russian alphabet.
Don't know if anyone else does this, but recently because I'm multilingual/aspiring polyglot I have been using the Cyrillic (Russkiy) alphabet to write my Spanish things. I feel it makes my brain work better and faster. Opinions?
How does this even work? Spanish has 5 clear vowels that always sound exactly the same. Russian has these letters that you'd need like 3 Latin characters to replicate (Щ!), and other letters that make no sound at all, and I mean okay just focusing on vowels, Russian vowels sound different depending on where they fall in the word...
Whatever turns the lights on in your brain I guess. I try to keep the two languages separate bc I will muddy the spanish sounds and over-pronounce the russian
For example: дехаме собрепасар тус зонас де пелигро reads phonetically to this: dejame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro (let me pass your danger zones, from "Despacito") Obviously accents (like in deJAme) don't work, but i can go really fast and neither my Russians or Spainishers know what it means :)!
Why are you using 'е', which is palatalised, to transcribe 'e', rather than 'э', which is not? The sound isn't palatalised in Spanish.
Russian isn't the only Cyrillic-script language, you know. Literally all you have to say is "This sample is based off of Serbian writing" and it's 100% correct.
OP specified 'Russian alphabet' and OP is learning Russian. The Russian alphabet is a specific subset of Cyrillic; learning Serbian phonetic values of letters is not going to help anyone learn Russian, which I thought was the point of the exercise (although a perfectly good idea if one's learning Serbian, of course).
That's true, which is why for disambiguation it's better to write "Cyrillic adaptation" rather than Russian adaptation.
da, spacibo:). Cyrillic is used in a lot of the former Soviet countries; some vary by a letter or two. For example, in Ukrainian i know the 'backwards N' is replaced by a little 'i'
That's exactly how I learned the Russian alphabet (with the exception that I just wrote English, not Spanish. For one, I don't speak Spanish, and two, it would have been far too difficult for my brain to do it in any of my other languages). :) I think it's a great way to learn a new alphabet.
I have devised a system to do this as well. It's based off of Serbian. I will show it below:

It has some issues, like the қ letter, which I am debating whether or not to retire it. Also I need a good Cyrillic letter to represent Spanish "x" aside from that other Cyrillic letter Ѯ ѯ.
When you say "here" and they go, "what that?" and you say "your name silly" :)
I once wrote some answers in the Catalan from Spanish course in Georgian transliteration. Somehow they were still counted right...
